Mississippi Sheiks – Shooting High Dice lyrics

Shooting High Dice Trk 11 3:32
Mississippi Sheiks
1930's Recordings
Sam Chatmon - bass guitar, (brother) Lonnie Chatmon - fiddle
(brother) Bo 'Carter' - guitar, Walter Vinson - guitar
Album: Stop & Listen (Yazoo 2006)

Well, shooting them *high dice
And that woman a-mine
Caused me to wear poor and beat
In the cold winter time

Now, all a-you men better
Take my advise
Just hold to your money
Stop shootin' high dice


Now, most ev'ry woman
In the neighborhood
Will get all your money
An don't mean you no good

When she get all, you're banned
You think ya g'win her home
You go there the next night
Something goin' on wrong

(guitar & fiddle)

Now, this has caused me
To live in a strain
Have spent all m'money
And it was in vain

But if f'ever gets my hands on
A dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to-oo it
That's my only friend.

Note: *High Dice is a simple dice game with
Two dice used (or as many as five.)
Banker throws first and players have to roll higher
Than his roll to win.
(it's something like that!)
